. the woman at center of the firestorm facing more questions. today u.n. ambassador to the u.s. susan rice met with republican senators who harshly criticized her initial ex-plan nation about the attack that killed four americans including ambassador chris stevens. what senator lindsey graham said after the meeting. >> bottom line, i'm more disturbed now than i was before, that the 16th september explanation about how four americans died in benghazi, libya, by ambassador rice, i think, does not do justice to the reality at the time and in hindsight clearly was completely wrong. >> dana bash following developments on capitol hill. before susan rice went before these republicans, senators, they seemed to be backing away from criticizing her. now it looks like in speaking with them, this is backfired. can you tell us what happened? >> reporter: that's right. i was told by a source familiar with this meeting that the reason why the senators backed off public comments, softened them, they did, susan rice requested a meeting and felt that was the most appropriate thing to do not keep pounding her be
controversial coming out of these briefings, whether or not susan rice, the u.n. ambassador -- the u.s. ambassador to the u.n., had the proper information or was correct in what she said publicly about the attack being probably at that point four days after the attack because of a demonstration. democrats are really to a person coming to her defense aggressively and trying to explain why there was a discrepancy. listen to kent conrad of the democratic member of the senate health care community. >> what is very clear is that ambassador rice used the talking points that the intelligence committee had all signed off on. that is very, very clear. she used the unclassified talking points that were signed off on by the entire intelligence community, so criticisms of her are completely unwarranted. that is very clear. >> and susan, dianne feinstein, just moments ago actually took out and read the unclassified talking points that susan rice used on that day, and they were very short. it sounds like there were two, maybe three points in the talking points, and it was almost certain to change.
to be secretary of state. and susan rice, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations. i have no doubt she would like to be secretary of state. what do you think? >> i think both of those, wolf, would be absolutely spectacular. i think john kerry did a fabulous job this election and in terms of really focusing on what the president's agenda has been and will continue to be. i think susan rice is also a very valuable member of the president's cabinet. i would love to see her be secretary of state, as i think a lot of americans out there would. so i think that he's got some terrific people to choose from. but i also would posit this. maybe not for secretary of state but in terms of as you see all these cabinet positions being reshuffled, i might get some hate mail from my democratic friends about this, but maybe he should think about appointing another republican. and so that way -- >> anyone in mind? >> i don't. >> he did, you know -- >> but that would be something that goes to this bringing people together. >> you did have -- we'll bring alex and david into this. he did have -- ray lahood is his
he's a big fan of ambassador susan rice -- does he have confidence she could pass a national confirmation for any post in a future cabinet? >> i will not engage in speculation of personnel matters. the president believes secretary rice has done an excellent job and is grateful for his service. >> this investigation has been going on for month. how is it that the white house didn't have any idea of this until the day after the election and congress a few days later? >> i refer you to the fbi. they have as i understand it, protocols in place for when they notify the legislative and executive branchs of the investigations. and you know, it is simply a fact that the white house was not aware of the situation regarding general patreaus until wednesday and the situation regarding general allen until friday. so, you know, the fbi's a place to guy in terms of explanation of the protocols they follow. i understand that is the answer that they will give, that there are protocols they follow that govern how they inform the various branchs of government of the investigations. >> do you t
on september 14th was general petraeus saying it was not a terrorist attack. why did susan rice carry that out. the president can't have it both ways. >> hmm. well, the bitter back and forth continues. the house intelligence committee is holding a closed door hearing on the attack that killed u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. more on the fallout from the libya attack. want to bring in dana bash, and, dana, you have been watching, staking outle intelligence committee hearing. there is reports i guess that there might be a videotape or something. do we know that there is a tape, surveillance tape, that exists of the attack? do we know that? >> well, this comes from our national security correspondent, suzanne, kelly who is reporting that what is going on behind those closed doors. it'seen going, on this t intelligence officials brought with them closed-circumstance yult video which from the compound that was recovered from the compound that, of course, was attacked in benghazi, and they're playing it for these lawmakers and the point, according to suzanne's sources, is to
." >> republican senator john mccain says that he is open to changing his mind on susan rice. now, if she's nominated to become the next swuf state, mccain, he now says he has, of course, been critical of her. she's the current u.s. ambassador to the u.n. she is under fire from republicans for initially saying that it was protesters, not terrorists, who launch the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. rice says she went with the information that the intelligence community gave her at the time. mccain now says he is not going to block her nomination. he is going to give her a chance to explain. here's how he explains that. >> i give everyone the benefit of explaining their position and the action that is they took. you'll be glad to have the opportunity to discuss these issues with her. >> all right. i want to bring in our foreign affairs correspondent jill dougherty. the president threw down the gauntlet at a press conference a few days ago. here's what he said. >> as i've said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best un
.s. ambassador to u.n. susan rice immediately after the vote. i want you to see what she said. >> today's unfortunate and counter productive resolution places further obstacles in the path to peace. that is where the united states voted against it. today's grand pronouncements will soon fade, and the palestinian people will wake up tomorrow and find that little about their lives has changed. >> how is it all these other countries, how is it that the -- the united states got it right here? >> mrs. rice is correct. ms. rice is correct, and in terms of -- it's not going to be a sea change on the ground. it could be a forever gone conclusion, but as i talk to analysts, 95% of the world voted here. not for mahmoud abbas. they voted for two-state solution. essentially on the 1967 borders. they voted for that vision. it was the united states, israel, and a smaterring of very small countries. >> what -- >> plus canada. >> what does this mean practically for the palestinian people? does it give them any power? does it move this process forward for them for statehood? >> are you talking about w t
